Aquarium Boat Trips

This year, the NMA is exploring the UK’s first National Marine Park, setting sail on selected dates throughout the year. Our Ocean Discovery Rangers will help you discover our British wildlife, from big to small, as well as the history of Plymouth’s stunning natural harbour. Our boat trips are open to everyone, so why not learn something new with our dedicated team of Ocean conservationists in 2022.
